Idol Style: Kpop and MCM

I'm not usually a label whore, especially for those designer brands that are all about putting their initials all over everything, but for some reason I can really get into the brand MCM.

In case you didn't know, MCM (Mode Creation Munich) is a formerly German brand, now Korean owned, that makes luxury accessories.  I'd never heard of this brand until I started paying attention to Kpop, but I've also recently started to see random American stars wearing the brand.

Kpop stars definitely have this brand on lock, though, and are often photographed carrying an MCM backpack.

Rain is one of their major spokespeople and does a great job at it:

    1. It's actually German. I made sure to know my facts before posting. Here's the link from the MCM site for you: http://www.mcmworldwide.com/en/brandstory.asp

  2. Ok so it's actually Korean but was German before. That's kind of buried on the official site. I changed it. Thanks guys.

  3. Do your homework. Attention is in the details. Slight stench of arrogance in this Erika.

  4. Thanks for the comment. I probably sounded disgruntled because I hate being wrong lol. I'm always glad when people correct any mistakes on here, actually. Merry Christmas!
